Skip to comments.WashTimes: Republican Party policy Draft Rips Bush's "Socialist" Bailouts (Glory Alleluia)
Posted on 12/30/2008 8:30:32 AM PST by quesney
A group of Republican leaders including the vice-chair of the Republican National Committee say they will try in January to pass a resolution accusing President George Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing "socialist" policies. Pretty blunt.

Great timing, they wait for now to issue this, after 5 trillion dollars are already spent?
At the risk of catching Hades on this thread, in general, capital spending is what government is SUPPOSED to be doing.
What government is NOT supposed to be doing is all of this social spending which is driving us bankrupt.
We’ve had Weimaraners for a long time. They are very good family dogs, but you need a big yard for them to be really happy..
I’m not convinced that GWB is a closet socialist. I just thinks he lives to have a Democrat say something nice about him, and they NEVER do!
Maybe if Ramos and Compean were active liberal Democrats, GWB would pardon them.
No, GWB was the de facto campaign manager for Oprah’s Choice. He is responsible for what he face.
From a pragmatic point of view, what the heck is the difference, if the results are always the same?
The Ramoses and Compeans must be appalled at GWB. Imagine how they will feel on Jan. 21.
No, I am celebrating the move away from democRAT-lite governance from the Republican party. If GWB gets tarred with that brush, it’s his own fault.
Well, another Reagan would be too little too late: Anthony Kennedy, Sandra Day O’Connor, King Day, no response to KAL.
You need to find a better photo for a dog to represent the GOP.
I can’t be sure, but it looks like that dog still has a pair.

Too little too late. But we can always hope.
Yes, I agree. Republican infighting, and acting like "Democrat-lite" big-government socialists got us exactly where the Republican (RINO) party is now.
I agree with Solomon Yue and the other conservative Republicans. We must break from the "Democrat-lite" socialist past and begin educating people now about conservative (Reagan) principles so that when it is time to vote in 2010 and 2012, more Americans understand the principles they are voting for/against.
...I don’t know, the libs hate Bush. This might just be another attempt to reach out to moderates and centrists...
We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.
The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.
The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

When waging political war, you must recognize the battles you can win and those you cannot. Winning the hearts of the people over fiscal conservatism is a lost cause. The only remedy for this excess will be the collapse of the economy in massive debts, or the rebellion of the people over the crushing taxes they have voted for themselves. That’s right, it is not George Bush who is to blame for this demand for government services at public expense, we the people are.
Someone has to take a stand against socialism and Bush has not.
"The resolution also opposes President-elect Obama's proposed public works program and supports conservative alternatives," while encouraging the RNC "to engage in vigorous public policy debates consistent with our party platform," said Mr. Bopp
If I just read that correctly, screw them!
Here's what that says to me:
We pubs don't want Obama's socialism, we pubs want "conservative alternatives" to socialism.
2010 is so going to be a democratic year.
